We would like to thank all of our First Quarter Rare Item Raffle participants so very much for all the kind words, help with getting the word out about our games, and enthusiasm. All 372 of you are greatly appreciated, and your participation has made a difference!

One fun indication of the difference you all have made can be seen in the graphic above. A fan sent this in, and we are not sure exactly which week this was, but it was sometime in the last 2 months. Note that Are You a Robot? and Get the MacGuffin are in first and third place for the week! This was taken from a site called BoredGamerTools.com, and that site is also currently showing that Are You a Robot? was the third "hottest" game in February! Things like this really help more gamers know about our games, and we are so lucky to have all of you helping us get the word out! Thank you!

Now on to the raffle results. Please follow the link to our contest page for details about number of raffle tickets placed, number of items available, winners, and more. For those of you who won one of the prizes, congratulations! We will be emailing you a confirmation within the next 24 hours and will be sending out the 70 prizes over the next two weeks or so.

For those who did not win this time, we're sorry for the disappointment, but hope you had fun along the way. You will have another chance in the Second Quarter raffle that will be starting on Friday. There will be some repeat actions, but many new and different ways to participate as well!

We would also like to give a special shout-out to those who wanted to help there be as many winners as possible by giving up their winnings if they won more than once. Many offered this, but only one--Thomas Preece--had that event happen. Thomas won the Q-Turn tokens not once, not twice, but FIVE times. But he gave the other four away to other participants. That spirit of generosity is one of the things we love so much about our fans. Thank you!

We were not expecting to release any more products this year, but Books A Million has made us an excellent offer, and so we are going to put out one more version of Fluxx in 2021--(Alice in) Wonderland Fluxx!

Andy has had this prototype in his bag for years and years, but the art was problematic and we weren't sure how much demand there was for the game, so it continued to wait for its turn.

Then we had a meeting with the buyer at Books A Million, and he said, "What would really be great is if you had a Wonderland Fluxx." It was perfect synergy. We have recently found a way to make smaller print runs, Books A Million could fix our problems with the art, and they guaranteed to buy enough to make the print run worth doing! Huzzah!

So keep in mind that Wonderland Fluxx will be available this fall, and if you know you want a copy, please pre-order with your friendly local game store so they know how many to buy. Or else plan to buy one at Books A Million to say thanks for making this happen!

MidSouthCon 2022

Though both the 2020 and 2021 MidSouthCons had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kristin and Andy are now scheduled as the the gaming guests of honor at MidSouthCon in 2022. The Looneys very much enjoyed their first time at MidSouthCon in 2012, and they plan to bring even more fun this time around! If you are planning to attend MidSouthCon, keep an eye on the schedule for planned events, panel discussions, and open gaming hours. The Looneys look forward to playing your favorite games with you, signing autographs, and showing off prototypes of upcoming games!

MidSouthCon is the longest-running annual fan-run multi-genre Science Fiction Convention in the Mid-South. It covers a diverse section of fannish culture that includes Science Fiction, Fantasy, Science, Comics, Horror, Education, Costuming, Anime, and Gaming. MidSouthCon has an average of 2200 attendees, including over 100 authors, editors, publishers, scientists, artists and other guests and panelists. It features more than 200 hours of programming, including panels, the annual Art and Charity Auctions, a Masquerade costume contest, and more. There are also hundreds of hours of gaming running non-stop throughout the weekend.

Can you tell us what prizes will be available in each quarter's raffle?

A:  Sorry, but no.

This answer is partially because we are still working out the details of what all the prizes will be. We have been adding things here and there as Andy found them, and are choosing which quarter they will go into based on a lot of different factors. For example, the holiday chocolates were in the first quarter so that they wouldn't melt during shipment in April.

It is also partially because telling you everything in advance is less fun for both you and us. Part of the fun of this year-long celebration is the continued interaction we get to have together. If we tell you all the year's prizes now, we miss out of the antici----pation! And the social media discussions of each individual prize as it comes up. And the ability to get more people interested as they see the posts.

In January there were less than 100 of you in the Gleam raffle. Today, on draw day, there were 372 of you. That's because we put up new prizes every week for three months. So we're sorry if this makes planning difficult, but we'd rather make the fun last. Thanks for your understanding!

Josh's Toys and Games, located in The Mall of New Hampshire, is our first fan-recommended featured store. Here is what Dave has to say about this store:

Josh's is a treasure. A store where you can see the same familiar faces at the register and the items sold feel hand-picked by humans rather than SKUs spit out of a corporate algorithm. 

Community... is a word that makes Josh’s and places like it so special. A store that is known and appreciated by the local gaming community. A store that is part of a community of independent retailers. A store that fosters community among its patrons. No matter their advantage in selection and sales volume, these are core qualities of game stores that big-box retailers will never be able to compete with, and ones that Josh’s Toys and Games exemplifies. A retail experience that feels warm and personal, rather than cold and detached.
